Breastfeeding РEnding Our Journey: Day 4 

No more engorgement, barely anything in the breasts and definitely no pain.

I’ve done this without drugs nor any cabbage leaves (pukes!).

Speaking of puking … last night our little monkey did just that after having engorged himself on milk. It brings back memories of our disastrous bottle feeding days…

Not sure why we’ve ended back there but hopefully we can continue to move forward.

He’s not asking for booby anymore which makes me feel sad. And last night he woke up at 3 looking for milk for the first time. Although he has been getting up at 4 when we would also have a feed. Might have to have a sippy cup at the ready.

He’s headed to bed just fine albeit our bed. With cuddles until he closed his eyes. 

Fingers crossed as Night 5: it will be uneventful 

I will summarize my feelings about this process once it’s over btw x

Sorry for being away…

We haven’t posted anything in the last fortnight as we recently suffered a bereavement in the family. Of course we will be back and we will try to post again very soon. So head on over to our Facebook page where you’ll see lots more useful and fun information.

Thank you for your continued support x

Favourite Apps – Pregnancy

Apps I really liked during my pregnancy were:

Pregnancy + helps give you advice about your pregnancy and shows you week by week developments in baby growth – compares baby to food items. You can track appointments too and share the app with your partner. It also has shopping lists that help you prepare for baby’s arrival.

Con: it has in app purchases (go pro) in order to access all the features and once you have reached the end of your pregnancy (I had an early arrival) it’s hard to update – well for tired sleep deprived mummy

Ovia Pregnancy- amazing app! Same as above minus the shopping list and sharing with partner BUT once baby arrives it continues to show you how your little one is developing. I now have a year old child and still use this app. You can see how big baby is compared to household items, toys or animals lol 

Con:No email updates which is a shame because it’s such a good app.

BabyCentre – you have a Mummy forum where you can join you due date month group and share tidbits & get support, gives you updates on your pregnancy as well as carries on as your child develops. You get email updates.

Con: development part ends at one in the app although you still have access to the forums and get email updates.

Apps to avoid:

Bounty/ my diary – waste of space – not nearly as much information as above and you get inundated with spam emails about things to buy or a book club to join. Very annoying! They also get to you through Bounty Packs – offered at the hospitals and Boots and other retail outlets. They have little freebies in them…
